Great Smoky Mountains - High Elevation

Tip of the week 

Approach & presentation is the name of the game here. These fish don't often get overly selective on fly patterns, but they spook easily and won't tolerate a bad drift!

Fish upstream, dress in earth-tone clothing, and keep a low profile. Stay back and make longer casts in slow pools. Get closer and keep as much line off the water when fishing pocket water.

Seven-day forecast 

We have potential for a lot of rain this weekend so keep an eye on water levels. Cold front moving in Saturday. With cooler temps and more water in the stream, next week should be awesome!
